									<foliation ana="later fol">There is later foliation in different hands (1-20). In 
										black ink, every fifth folio number (and possibly 22 on the last leaf, which is
										largely damaged) was written in the top outer corner. Two different hands have then added 
										the missing numbers in the equivalent corner using black and grey ink. Finally,
									the number 22 was written in pencil underneath the foliation number of the first leaf.</foliation>

								made paper as the pastedowns. On the front cover, the number <q>114</q> was written in the top left-hand corner using black ink. Moreover,
								remnants of the number <q>178(?)</q> in brown ink can be seen in that corner. On the spine, there are two stickers for the shelfmark 
								and the running number. This older binding is kept in the same box as the manuscript.</p></binding>

									The slip is made from an old envelope. On the verso-side, part of the address, folding lines and some remnants
									of a red applied seal (possibly shellac) are still visible. The legible part of the address reads:
